Earthing

Have you heard about the new trend earthing or grounding? This involves walking barefooted 🦶in nature. At the beach, in the park or anywhere else
you feel comfortable taking your shoes off. It’s the
latest wellbeing trend. A study by the University of California Irvine has suggested that
skin-to-earth contact could have many potential benefits, including reduced inflammation and pain and increased blood flow. This is because the earth is loaded with electrons that have an
antioxidant effect. You have to spend at least 30 minutes barefoot to get the benefits 🌿

Maintain eye health with goji berries

For your eyes only.
To maintain eye health, go for goji berries.
Just a handful of goji
berries have been found
to help improve the
density of the protective
pigments in your eyes.
At the University of
California people aged 45-65 participated in a trial that found that those eating
28g (a handful) of goji
berries five days a week
for 90 days had an
improvement in the
protective pigments that
filter out blue light and
act as a sunscreen for
the eyes. Another group
took specific eye health
supplements, but their
levels of this protective
pigment remained
the same by the end
of the study. So go ahead, go for some gojis 🌿

Prepare your skin for summer

Summer is around the corner! This is the right time to start preparing your skin by building up moisture levels for the forth coming exposure towards summer sun. The benefit of starting early is that all new skincells will have optimum levels of moist, elasticity. And by so, your sun tan will last much longer and your skin will not get dryed out as fast, when exposed towards sun light, not over exposed. We highly recommend our body moisturizer, Boddy Buddy. Rich as a body butter but still fluid enough to pass as a lotion. Every ingredient carefully picked to obtain deeply moisturized skin boosted with all botanical components that the skin benefits from, without compromising our planet. Boddy Buddy. 💚💚💚

Take care of your hair

Take care of your hair. Wet hair is especially susceptible to breakage. Exposing hair to water causes the hair shaft to swell and stretch. Adding
stress from brushing in that state can cause it to break. Brush your hair when it’s dry before shampooing. Towel-dry if it’s tangled after washing so it no
longer drips. You may want to apply a leave-in conditioner,
and use a wide-tooth comb or a detangling brush. At least twice a week apply Sea me mask on your head and give yourself a good scalp massage. It soothes, revitalizes and deeply nourishes your scalp and hair. Helps to improve the health of your scalp. Protects and strengthens your hair. Why not multi task both face and head with Sea me mask?

Natural sunscreen

UV shield this spring? Make My Day contains the revolutionary ingredient, Algica.
Algica work as an efficient SPF booster. First in vitro studies showed that Algica increase the SPF in a formulation with an average of 23%.
In vivo studies shows that Algica can boost the SPF with an average of 13 % togheter with inorganic UV filters and with an average of 10 % with organic UV filters.

Algica's unique porous structure absorbs between 10-20 times more sweat, oil, bacteria and impurities, and provides three times faster absorption of oil and sweat, compared to other synthetic silica ingredients and diatomaceous earth.
The unique pore structure of Algica can also work as a carrier of other active ingredients such as vitamins and nutrients.

Algica has proven capabilities to regulate moisture levels in the skin. A controlled in vivo, randomized, double-blind study conducted by an external actor showed that Algica’s moisturizing properties fully match those of hyaluronic acid.

The same study showed that the feeling of Algica on the skin is smoother. Algica is perceived as easier to apply and is absorbed faster than hyaluronic acid. Algica's sensory modifying properties make the feeling of the product smooth and exclusive.

Humidity impact on skin

Be aware of the humidity changes in the climate because that has an impact on your skin’s needs. The colder the temperature, the dryer the air. This means that during cold weather the skin tends to loose moisture when it evaporates into the cold air. To prevent this moisture  loss it's important to use an oil, that locks in moist into the outer layers of the skin. When weather goes into spring, or warmer climate, the humidity levels increases in the air. This is why our skin feels less dry in warmer, more humid climates. Then adapt your routine to decrease the amount oil used. In daytime our soft Make My Day. This cream is excellent during sunnier times as the Algica in it acts as a uv filter. This one does the trick by itself, in warmer climate.
Many of you choose to use the cream during the day and the oil over night.
Just keep some attention to what your skin is telling you it needs and adapt the amount of oil contra cream according to what feels is giving you the most comfort. 💚
